The operative clause will trigger a claim. This means that if, during the period of insurance, a learner sustains bodily injury from an accident while under the supervision of the school (where the learner is enrolled) and this results in emergency medical expenses or death (caused by the injury) within 12 calendar months, the Insurer agrees to pay the compensation to the Insured and the costs of emergency travel to the hospital.

The edu-emergency policy will guarantee private hospital admission as well as cover amounting to R100 000 per learner per incident. There will be an excess payable if the learner does not have a medical plan in place.
